Do you feel you don’t have goals or you can’t achieve them although you have tried everything? Do you feel paralysed or overwhelmed facing certain situations? Do you feel everything is annoying or your anger, sadness or fear last for long time? Do you feel stuck with some thoughts and you can’t stop overthinking them? Do you see these features within a member of your family? I think everyone will feel like this over the course of our lives, even it can be adaptative. However, sometimes we can struggle to find clarity and understanding , at the same time that respect both ourselves and others.

I offer a Free 30-minute telephone consultation as I recognise that it can feel difficult to know if counselling is right for you. You may be feeling nervous about beginning therapy or unsure of how counselling could help. To alleviate some of this uncertainty, the consultation; this gives you an opportunity to ask any questions that you may have about counselling as well as an opportunity for us both to talk about how we could work together. By booking a free, friendly telephone consultation, it gives us the chance to build a rapport, and helps in supporting you to explore your options in counselling.

Hello and welcome to my profile. You've taken the most important first step to finding some help. Life can be pretty tough at times. Hard feelings do pass, but sometimes we get stuck and need help to gain insight and options to manage those feelings. I provide a safe space for you to explore what is going on. I work in a mindful way to reduce any anxiety you may be feeling and, if you would like, we can be creative using visualisation, art materials and toys to help you unlock things that you may not be able to put into words. I am experienced in video and telephone therapy, as well as face to face when circumstances allow.

If anxiety is getting in the way of you living your life the way you want to, we can work together to change that. Anxiety can creep up on us and there doesn't need to have been a big trigger for it to have a real impact on our lives. I work with people to overcome a wide range of anxiety based difficulties, such as general worry, phobias, panic attacks, obsessions and compulsions and PTSD. Cognitive behavioural therapy can help you understand your anxiety, become less fearful of it and find ways to tackle it. Therapy can also help you to recognise what you are already doing that is helpful - there is always more than you think!

I entered the world of psychotherapy so I could manage and eventually overcome the painful emotions and thoughts that I had experienced. If this is the case for you, then psychotherapy can help you explore uncomfortable feelings that have held you back from living life to the full. Life often throws the unexpected at us, be it through relationships, either personal or professional, we sometimes find it difficult to cope alone and need the support to help us through this difficult time.

I have worked as a counsellor/psychotherapist since 2003. I work with short-term clients using CBT and solution focused models. The aim here is to help clients to learn strategies and solutions for coping with their difficulties. I also work with gestalt and the person centred models. These models are more relational working in the "here and now" of what is going on relationally between the client and myself. These models are more suited to longer term work to assist clients to find their way through the difficulties they are experiencing. I work with body, thoughts, feelings & emotions. I work with both individuals and couples.

All of us in our fast-paced, demanding society at some time struggle with problems in life. This may be due to relationship difficulties, the death of a loved one, feeling like there is just no point any more, depression or traumatic events from our childhood and past that impact on us now. Counselling helps to identify underlying problems, assess sources of hidden conflict and pinpoint areas for personal and relationship growth. It provides a framework for exploring your feelings and gaining awareness of yourself as an individual, or discovering the dynamics in our marital or family relationships.

Hello and welcome to my profile. Life can throw some unexpected and difficult times at us. This is probably even more true than ever at the moment! Reaching out for support is a first step towards working through these difficulties. Sometimes it might feel like you will never feel better, but counselling or psychotherapy can support you towards finding life's challenges more manageable.

I believe that all therapy is very personal and has to fit with you, therefore my main focus is always you and your journey. This means that I want to provide a safe and accepting environment where we can work together to bring about the changes you want to make. I have had my own counselling journey through the years and know how the counselling experience supported me. So, some years ago I decided to pay it forward. I bring knowledge, expertise and experience from holding a BA Honours degree in Psychology and a Professional diploma in Psychotherapeutic counselling practice, all I ask is you bring the person you know best. You.

I offer a welcoming, confidential and non-judgmental space for you to explore whatever’s happening in your life. I work holistically, interested in you as a whole person and paying attention to your mind, body, spirit, and lived experience. Perhaps there’s a particular issue or problem you want to address. Maybe there are aspects of your identity or experience you want to explore. Your ongoing personal growth can be a reason to seek therapy. I support you to explore what hinders and inhibits you and to access inner resources and creativity to deal with challenges and live your whole self more fully.
